In recent years, registered investment advisors (RIAs) have faced unprecedented challenges, from a global pandemic to soaring inflation, geopolitical conflicts, and market disruptions. These tumultuous times have underscored the importance of adaptability and innovation in the wealth management industry. One significant transformation setting a new standard in client service and operational efficiency is adopting advanced rebalancing technology.
The quest for advanced rebalancing technology
While the world grapples with uncertainty and rapid change, RIAs face the complex and time-consuming process of managing and rebalancing portfolios. This includes adjusting for various factors, from market disruptions to individual client preferences such as risk tolerance, tax considerations, legacy planning, wealth preservation, charitable giving, and ESG and DEI. In such a dynamic environment, making quick and informed tactical decisions across investment portfolios is paramount.
However, many RIAs still rely on antiquated manual processes, with Cerulli data from 2021 indicating that 42% have yet to incorporate rebalancing technology into their operations. Rebalancing can consume hundreds of hours of effort for those still using manual methods, leading to delays and potential errors.
For firms embracing technology, selecting the right rebalancing solution can be challenging. Many platforms claim to automate portfolio rebalancing but may need to be more flexible, complete, and able to accommodate customization. Some may lack the ability to integrate data across different asset types and accounts or execute sophisticated tax strategies. Others may handle specific tasks but offer limited scalability, hindering the firm’s growth.
